Client Registration Methods
There are several ways to register clients to your SUSE Manager Server.
For Salt clients, we recommend that you register clients using the SUSE Manager Web UI. For more information, see client-configuration:registration-webui.adoc.
If you want more control over the process, have to register many clients, or are registering traditional clients, we recommend that you create a bootstrap script. For more information, see client-configuration:registration-bootstrap.adoc.
For Salt clients and even more control over the process, executing single commands on the command line can be useful. For more information, see client-configuration:registration-cli.adoc.
The client must have the date and time synchronized correctly with the SUSE Manager Server before registration.
You must create an activation key first, to use bootstrap script or command line method. For more information about creating activation keys, see client-configuration:activation-keys.adoc.
Do not register the SUSE Manager Server to itself. The SUSE Manager Server must be managed individually or by using another separate SUSE Manager Server. For more information about using multiple servers, see large-deployments:multi-server.adoc.
